On Quality Scientists

Humaira recently shared this interesting BenchFly post on “The 7 Requirements of All Effective Scientists”. In short, Mark Changizi states that the following are essential:

  1. You need an idea notebook
  2. Do not aim to solve some specific problem
  3. You may need 10 to 100 ideas before you find a good one
  4. Avoid feeling part of any specific academic community
  5. Avoid working for anyone, and that includes a granting agency
  6. Don’t publish without data
  7. Avoid all but the simplest experiments, and avoid building complex tools
